Luckily happened upon this brilliant restaurant whilst looking for somewhere to eat in Norwich on a Saturday night and not knowing the place. Delightful staff and atmosphere, delicious food and drink and, it's true, this is the best creme brulee in the world! Pity it wasn't open on Sunday or we'd have been back. Definitely worth more than one visit!

Just had wonderful evening at Chez Denis with two people who live in London. They were very impressed with choice of menu, friendliness, and atmosphere in the restaurant. Prices good as well. Will return and have more rum punch. Wow. Thankyou for our birthday celebration.

Stopped off in Norwich for 2 nights last week, my husband tried to book a reservation somewhere but could not get a reply, so based on the reviews I booked us in here. As with previous comments Denis is very welcoming, friendly but without being too effusive! I had scallops as a starter which were very good. On recommendation from... More

We've been to Chez Denis twice in the last month. The first time we came, it took me back to our Caribbean holidays. We were so impressed with the menu and the quality of food and drink that we came back as soon as we could get a babysitter! I've ordered the crab claws and the jerk chicken and the... More

We searched the restaurants in Norwich for something a bit different and this seemed to fit the bill. We were not disappointed. We had a lovely greeting from Denis on arrival and when we all started to speak a little French, which seemed to be appropriate for the type of restaurant we were in, Denis very gently corrected our mistakes!...

Our friends took us to Chez Denis, they'd been there before and love the place - we were similarly impressed. We were late due to weather problems on the road but this was not a problem for Denis, who is a great host, very friendly and really made us feel welcome. The restaurant is quite small and cosy, the food... More
